Pennsylvania Dutch Apple Pie

Pennsylvania Dutch Apple Pie

I know I’ve been gone for a while (I moved to Atlanta in September & it took a while to find my feet!) but I’m back. And look, I bought pie, figuratively speaking of course! If you’re looking for a knockout pie for the holidays (or just about anytime) that still has some down-home flair, you just can’t go wrong with a Pennsylvania Dutch Apple Pie. It’s really one of my fave apple pies (ok, I have two favorites, this one and a caramelly one that I’ll post sometime) from the crispy, crunchy streusel on top down to the layer upon layer of tart, creamy, dreamy apples.

German Baked Apples Bratapfel

German Baked Apples Bratapfel

German Baked Apples Bratapfel takes me right back to childhood! I don’t think at the time anyone thought of them as being particularly “German.” They were, like so many recipes that were ubiquitous to the Midwest, just a part of small-town, down-home cooking. Baked apples appeared a lot-at our table for dessert.

Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad with Apple & Feta

I don’t know if I was happy or horrified by how well the Brussels sprouts I had in the fridge kept! I’ve been checking on them, watching as there were certainly things more desperate to be used at my house. They’ve been in my fridge veggie drawer since the first week we high-risk people were told to stay in so that’s five weeks now, I think! Well, it was high time to get after them and so came about this Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad with Apple & Feta.

Tangy Apple Cabbage Slaw

Tangy Apple Cabbage Slaw

Ya gotta know I’m really a fan of coleslaw or as I see it called more often these days, cabbage slaw. Cabbage is relatively inexpensive, easily found during any season, and so healthy and I love to work it into a slaw. And I love just about any slaw, and I have a bunch on my site, I’m always keeping my eye open for fun and fresh variations. That’s where this Tangy Apple Cabbage Slaw comes into play.
